"I'm Sun. Can I use the Mauve Project's testsuite?"

David Herron @ Sun
Hi, I'm getting ready to request permission to officially use Mauve
in-house on OpenJDK testing.

Reviewing the license headers I found an instance of the Common Public
License in a properties file.

mauve//gnu/testlet/java/util/zip/InflaterInputStream/messages.properties

I don't know yet if this will be a problem.  The policy says I have to
tell the lawyers about this other license ....soooooo...  Hm, I also
found a file under the Apache license and that the CORBA tests were
imported from elsewhere and are under either LGPL or GPL.

Then there is:
mauve//gnu/testlet/java/util/regex/Pattern/pcrematches.java:  /** Regex
test suites from adapted from PCRE (http://www.pcre.org/license.txt). */

But that's just the BSD license.

I really just wanted to send you an email with that question from your
FAQ because it's such a cool question for me to ask.

We've been flexible with the licensing because, among other things,
we're not distributing  binaries.

Indeed!  I've been waiting years to hear it!

 (I really need to update that page..)

Yeah, I guess it is a mish-mash.  Personally I wouldn't be averse to
just deleting selected tests if it makes life simpler.

Supposedly I added that zip test.  I don't remember doing it :)

For the CORBA tests, email Audrius.  He should be able to tell you
exactly where they came from; or it may be in the Mauve list archives.

:)

The Mauve web site is hilariously un-updated.  It still mentions
getting CVS from Cyclic.
